Eternal Prison

Poem by: AmandaBrookeWrites

Summary

I'm so sick of this eternal bondage that allows no freedom. I'm sick of strict rules. I'm almost an adult and the leash has not be released from their tight grasp. I love them but I wish they could read this and understand what I've beeen trying to communicate with them. This is for everyone who has had parents like this. I'm so tired, I didn't care about the rhythm or the rhyme scheme. Let's just vent for awhile

Gold had once held value to me

Maybe I’m rich, maybe it has value

But these golden bars say differently

I’m in an eternal prison; arrested for nothing

 

Charged with a crime my parents create

So that I can’t leave and I can’t be myself

My youthful years have almost deteriorated

And I’ve done nothing worth remembering

--Well to my parent’s consent at least

Friendships are made but only in school

No mall, movie, or large pleasant feast

No romance or even a great memory

 

High school will be over and I’m still in a cage

Eternal prison and eternally their daughter

For that I’d be grateful, if that didn’t mean slave

I’m tired of the ruthlessness and dictatorship

 

I have no control and the free will that is God given

Is stripped away from me at birth by the two

I love them so much but not how we’re living

I need my space, my privacy, my life – I need it back

 

Sometimes, I know they don’t have a choice

And I know that this isn’t easy on them either

But it would be easier if they’d let me have a voice

Instead of ignoring everything I say and do

 

Everyone complains and this might seem like nothing

Just a stupid teenager venting about parental problems

But take a walk in my shoes and you’ll definitely see

This isn’t exaggeration; it’s my sad reality

 

They aren’t bad parents and I love them to death

They just need to understand that I can’t live life like this

Locked up in a cage? One day they’ll open the door

And I’ll fly like the wind until they don’t see me anymore
